Modules and Courses
There are 3 basic types of modules:
1. Compulsory modules: all students are required to take the courses of these modules
2. Elective modules: students can choose within a thematically defined area
3. Optional modules: students have the free choice in choosing module courses offered
at faculties which have made cooperative agreements with the institute
Modules are divided into seminars and lectures, which finish with a presentation of the work at the end of the semester. For each presentation the students receive Credit Points which will show in a transcript of records. Regular students will finish their course with the degree Bachelor of Arts or Master of Arts respectively. The first term of the academic year starts at the beginning of October and finishes at the end of March. The second term starts at the beginning of April and finishes at the end of September. There are no lectures between end of February and beginning of April, and between end of July and beginning of October.
